"Hurricane Waters" as written by and Clarence Greenwood....
I will carry you through the hurricane waters
And I'll remember you in the blue skies
I will carry you through the hurricane waters
And I'll remember you in the blue skies

Something happens when
You're caught searching for an answer
When you're stuck in the middle
Of a place that you don't belong
When you start to lose sight of what's right and wrong
When we started it was innocent
'Cause when we started it was innocent

I will carry you through the hurricane waters
And I'll remember you in the blue skies
I will carry you through the hurricane waters
And I'll remember you in the blue skies

Until we meet again
Until it's like it was
Until then
Until the answers start raining down
Until the skies open up until the trumpet starts
Until then
Until the city and the county ain't divided
Until then
Until the spirit and the mind ain't fighting
Until the scenes of tomarrow and today finally play

I will carry you through the hurricane waters
And I'll remember you in the blue skies
I will carry you through the hurricane waters
And I'll remember you in the blue skies

    My InterpretationMy personal interpretation...
    I hear this song as a conversation between God and Adam & Eve or, more broadly, the human race.

    God is saying I'll carry you through your trials and remember you when things are good (I think of you all the time, not just when you ask for me).

    Man says... when we started it was innocent (perfect) until we lost sight of right & wrong.

    Then they say... Until we meet again (Jesus returns) until it's like it was (in the beginning when it was innocent), until the answers start raining down (the truth is revealed), until the skies open up and the trumpet sounds (this is a biblical reference of Revelation 11:15-19... the trumpet sounds for his return and the heaven's open)... the rest is basically no more division, no more questioning, eternity is here.

    That's my take.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure this is a song of hope and regret for a love lost. He begins professing his eternal love by promising to stand by her always and to always think of her in the brightest light. This is the line he cant help but repeat.

    He goes on to explain how they had let confusion(searching for an answer) lead them down a path and before they realized it the relationship was in a place they'd never intended. It definatly didnt start that way.

    The next verse kinda contradicts itself. It show's that he will always have hope, but at the same time he knows things wont be like they were for a long time, until even possibly, the end of the world(until the skys open up and the trumpet starts).(never?) I think he's looking for another chance and even if he can't get it, he wants her to know that he will always be there for her.

    General CommentI am so excited! This is the first time I've been the first commenter for a song on this site. This is my favorite song of the "Clarence Greenwood Recordings." This song appears to be about a man in a bad portion in a relationship, but he's promising her that he's going to stay with her and it will bet better.

    General CommentI think it's about how two people got into a relationship way too fast and now they're both kind of ruined. I also get the feeling that they're seperated, but he promises to stick by her side as a friend and help her through it, and when it's all over he'll remember that experience forever.

    General CommentI think this is about believing in and loving someone so much that you want nothing more to help them. He understands what the subject is going through and he is there to help- and he will remember him/her as the best person they were..

    My InterpretationThis song is about two people who were in a relationship. She died. He was in love, and he's waiting until he gets to see her again, "until the skies open up until the trumpet starts." He can only see her again when he dies, "until the spirit and the mind ain't fighting." He blames himself for her death so when he dies his spirit is freed and it doesn't matter anymore. What he means when he talks about searching for an answer and being stuck in the middle, in the middle of right and wrong, is he was making a decision about something. Obviously he regrets this, and it was the cause of her death. Probably related to a drug overdose, "a place you don't belong." So he will remember her for the good times, "in the blue skies." He wants her back, to show this he tells her he'll do anything for her, including carrying her through hurricane waters. When they meet again in the afterlife, and it becomes like it was, innocent, without drugs(assuming it was drugs).
